Draco Malfoy’s Galactic Ego is the perfect name for a Prog Rock/Emo fusion band no one will ever found.
yo let’s do it, it’s perfect, let’s start a bAND
quick question where can I get a theremin for like < 50 cents
It could also be a cocktail.
equal parts gin, grenadine, and teen angst
Psst if there is a prog rock/emo fusion band to be made, I volunteer my emo poetry that tries to sound like T S Eliot and Allen Ginsberg had babies together writing skills and also my ability to whine like Draco Malfoy.
#what’s so great about POTTER#are his songs as elaborate as MINE?#is his hair as WELL COIFFED as MINe?#are his leGS as SLim as MInE?#i tHink NOT#clEARLy I Am the BETTER MAN#this should be a fanfic?#a seventies era fanfic#rival prog rock bands#our music is less popular because it is MORE intelliGEnt#look at poTter being all nAff with his puBliC breakdOWN#and then the eighties come along and they start writing intelligent hair metal songs#okay but draco malfoy WOULD be a very pissy roger waters#these tags are all over the place but there is a point to this#namely that i need a seventies prog rock au which closely mirrors the rise and fall of pink floyd and elp#and then devolves into an eighties hair metal au (via tobermoriansass)
draco malfoy would be a very pissy roger waters
There was a dark time in my life when I read fanfic in the pink floyd fandom and I can confirm that Draco Malfoy = Roger Waters.
I mean he probably even has the aristocratic horse face and the absurd midlife crisis along with the need to sue people over the fact that it is HIS inflatable pig, thank you very much and if you’re going to use it you’re going to have to remove its genitals.
And then Draco proceeds to write an opera about the first wizarding war while divorcing his third wife.
Also Draco in shagpile robes.
Suddenly one of my favorite things/aesthetics. “Draco Malfoy’s Galactic Ego” would either have to be a generous dram of Islay scotch with bitters and tears or something with blue curacao because outer space. Maybe a daiquiri, Hemingway proportioned, with a little bit added along with the lime juice, producing a sickly turquoise beverage you can gulp down in a far corner the Hog’s Head while muttering about your life.
Also theremin is key.
Starting a winery called winefeld that will have Seinfeld themed wines
Ryan! let’s all move to Napa
I remember people applauding in the cinema
This made me so happy. You can have a shaken martini if that’s what you like, but I will never understand why since you miss out on the delicious texture of a martini.
(And don’t even get me started on the vodka part. The interaction between gin and vermouth is exceptional and basically the whole point of the drink; swap out the gin for a tasteless spirit and you’re drinking exceptionally light vermouth with a kick and that just tastes so much worse. Unless…you thought GETTING WASTED was the whole point of a martini? So sad.)
Shaken yields a colder and more watery drink, which may very well be your jam. It’s useful too in cutting the strength of a martini, which is entirely alcohol. My best friend, who usually makes the Manhattans we both drink, prefers hers shaken. Traditionally, you’re supposed to stir Martinis and Manhattans; I like this approach because it creates this wonderful silky texture in both drinks and there’s little on earth that beats that mouthfeel coupled with the taste of the drink itself.
Back (and redesigned) by popular demand, it’s our Breweries of the United States print!
This 39” x 27” PCL classic has been redone from the ground up, with twice as many breweries as its progenitor and featuring an all new design celebrating the great brewers of the United States. From Sierra Nevada to Deschutes to our pals at Brooklyn Brewery, this magnificent map of malt and hops clocks in at over seven square feet and features over 1400 breweries, from craft to micro and everything in between.
Perfect for hopheads, IPA-addicts, and Ale-and-Lager lovers of all stripes.
Er. In retrospect it might have been a bad idea trying to make this AU happen because I know nothing about alcohol except that I don’t like the taste and it burns when it goes down your throat.
I for one am looking forward to skewering every aspect…
This is true. Most of the terminology is pretty old and does actually convey useful information about the beer, but all of it’s been making a comeback at once along with craft breweries and their attempts at distinguishing themselves from one another. It’s getting to be a bit much. I’m in favor of the whole movement because the standard of American beer was horrific even just five years ago (granted, I was still a teenager) but the way it makes beer drinking look so complicated is a stupid consequence. It does, however, create plenty of room to poke fun at the whole thing.
Nnngggfff I guess i’m probably just having A childish hissy fit at Not Being Able to Understand A Thing, but yeah. Lots of parody value. Also fairly sure I have friends who are ironically into this or maintain a sense of irony and aloofness? Its interesting to observe the politics of beer consumption among hipster twenty year olds. The eternal quandary of balancing passion with an understanding of THE ridiculous that requires one to be metatextual while drinking a craft beer - did i just analyze beer drinking habits among twenty year olds yes yes i did.
It’s a bell-shaped curve, I’ve found. The amount of douchiness is highest only when people don’t really know that much but want to pretend they do; once you’ve got more of it down, you realize it really is just about drinking what you like. You’re pretty on the mark; there’s a lot of that ironic posturing where I’m from, unfortunately.
